Tough loss but it was against a pretty good player. I think that Shahar has to be leaving Canberra with some confidence. None of the matches were against easy competition and she played well all the way through.

Boy, the only thing worse than Shahar losing is nobody posting about it!
I thought Shahar played hard but this is one that she could have and should have won.

After the fucking AO, It will only make sense if Shahar wins the title Pattaya.

Her quarter:
4-PEER Shahar ISR vs KIM So-Jung KOR
TANASUGARN Tamarine THA vs SANCHEZ LORENZO Maria ESP
BONDARENKO Alona UKR vs DOMINGUEZ LINO Lourdes ESP
7-NAKAMURA Aiko JPN vs KANEPI Kaia EST

Kadima Shahar, lets go for it

Queen of Asia.

Koreans play alot like the japanese players - though they aren't as succesful (both countries have it as school sport activity - thus the large interest in it for so many years) but shahar SHOULD win it.
tammy is a bit of a riddle. her performance is always a question mark - and she's a type of player shahar doesn't have much experience against (lost to asagoe in the ozzy open though - that would be a bad sign as tammy is closer to her aggressive fast court style than to baseliners whom shahar does better against - she also barely beat sugiyama, who's attacking style is the same classic asian approuch) though she did beat stosur - but only on clay.

frankly - i think tammy will beat her. when given pace, she get's into a rythm and can potentially beat most of the girls on tour. it's still not total S&V, but it's going to be a partisan crown and she's really adored there. she's shooting for the title, nothing less.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

I doubt it, tanasugarn is no way near her best form. She's had a bad 2005 and she doesn't show any signs of getting back into form in 2006..
If shahar beat Sugiyama, even barely. She should beat Tanasugarn.

I was happy with the Canberra showing against Sprem and Daniilidou. She's beaten them in straights without any mental lapses, and now when the QF barrier is gone, I expect even more from her.

If Shahar will be calm and focused throughout this turnament, she can win the title. If not, there is always the army to blame but seeing the tour condition now, no reason why she shouldn't be top30 atleast. She has the tennis (even now), its just about the mental stuff, which I hope she'll prove us she has plenty of.

P.S I bet on Maria Sanchez Lorenzo to win the match against Tanasugarn.

I'm with you there ASAP. Sanchez Lorenzo can be dangerous and this is not the easiest of 2nd round matchest, asuming Shahar wins the 1st.
The AO was unfortunate but its not as if Shahar lay down against a weak player. In any case, she got to a semi-final to start the year - now that monkey is off her back. So I would not say the trip down under was a total disaster.

Peer is on her way. We are 12 hours behind Thailand , here in The US Midwest. I'd be willing to lose some sleep to see Peer win her first Tour title.
Show me the way to that streaming video!!!
